If you are in Cartagena for a few days, hit up Avenida San Martín in the Bocagrande section of town. Located a block from the beach, this street has loads of hostels, restaurants and businesses. Bocagrande's beach is world-renowned. Although it is crowded and the vendors are persistent, the area is still suitable for catching some rays. The clearest water is at the peninsula's far west end, in the Laguito neighborhood. Bocagrande, which literally means "big mouth," is an alternative launching point for boat trips to Isla del Encanto and historical Isla de Tierra Bomba. As for nightlife, it's mellow. Although Bocagrande's bars are more low-key than those of Getsemaní, you can still dance the night away.

Other neighborhoods in Cartagena: San Diego, El Centro, Getsemaní and Near Cartagena.
